A new online service, 420onlinedoctor.com, has been launched in the New York medical cannabis industry providing patients with easy access to a pot doctor to receive medical marijuana authorization. The service allows patients from all over the state to get their online medical card without ever having to leave their home.
The service 420onlinedoctor.com is particularly helpful for people living in remote areas outside of urban centers where a pot doctor may be difficult to find as well as for people suffering from chronic or debilitating conditions that keep them housebound and unable to access the nearest doctor registered to authorize medical marijuana use in the state.
To receive an online evaluation, patients simply sign up for free on 420onlinedctor.com website to request a videoconference with a medical marijuana doctor online. If the doctor finds that the patient qualifies for medical marijuana certification, the patient pays a small fee to the doctor for a letter of authorization and another small fee to the state to be issued a state medical marijuana card. If the doctor finds during the evaluation that the patient does not qualify for medical marijuana authorization, the patient does not pay anything for the appointment. Doctor’s letters of authorization for medical marijuana use in New York state must be renewed every year. 420onlinedoctor charges a lower rate for renewal letters than it charges for first-time letters. $89 for renewal and $149 for new.
Note that, in New York state, a primary care physician cannot legally authorize medical marijuana use unless that doctor is enrolled as a member of the state’s medical cannabis program. Online appointments with 420onlinedoctor.com doctors are available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and are handled with 100 percent confidentiality. Doctors are also available to address follow-up questions and concerns at any point in between renewals. The only items you need with you during your appointment are proof of identity and proof of residency, such as a valid U.S. passport and a valid New York state driver’s license or ID card. Other accepted forms of New York state residency include a utility bill, a current lease document or a copy of an identification card issued by the government that includes your name and a residence address in New York state.
Keep in mind that receiving a letter of authorization from a New York marijuana doctor does not automatically entitle you to begin purchasing or cultivating, possessing and using marijuana just yet. You must also first take that letter of authorization down to the state health department, or submit it online through the New York Department of Health Medical Marijuana Program website in order to have an official state medical marijuana card issued to you identifying you as a certified medical marijuana patient.
